The big hurdle

Well, for the last couple weeks I have been dealing with these buyers and their reaction to the home inspection. Let's just say, that it ain't been easy. I have been trying to keep the faith, cause I know this is God's deal and He will see it through, but man has it been hard. Good days and bad days. The buyers were really concerned over a mismatch in color of the slab of the house. The inspector made this out to be something way more than it is just to cover his back. However, this made the buyers really antsy and I could tell that the outcome of the closing was hinged on them getting a concrete specialist to look at the slab - this I refused to pay for cause I knew nothing was wrong. However, the devil took this opportunity to put lots of doubt in my head and I took the bait hook, line, and sinker. So I got the call yesterday from my realtor that a concrete specialist had inspected the slab and said that it was fine, we will be closing as scheduled. Huge weight off my shoulders. Now, there are no more hurdles to jump (as of yet), no more inspections, no more dealing with the buyers until the day of closing. Thanks for all the prayers for my faith to stay strong, it has really really helped. Lesson learned once again, that as soon as I am somewhat feeling sure in my faith, that is when I fail the most. I should take the plank out of my eye, reassemble the hurdle, and give it a try again.

Personally I wouldn't call that a lack of faith. Even David, the man after God's own heart, would ask God questions but he always had faith that God would see him through. You always knew that God was there and would see you through. I would call this a trial of patience for waiting on Him.
